Acting on the belief that music education is vital to childhood development, Musical Masterworks obtained private foundation support to bring music to under-served areas of New London and Middlesex County at no cost to them. Musical Masterworks’ community involvement program commenced during the 1997-1998 season.
In the past fifteen years, Musical Masterworks has presented over 100 concerts to more than 15,000 students in more than twenty schools, located in New London, Waterford, Old Lyme, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Deep River, Essex, Norwich, and Montville. Artists who have appeared include the Imani Winds, the New England Percussion Ensemble, the Amelia Piano Trio, the Marian Anderson String Quartet, the Chiara String Quartet,the Ritz Chamber Players, and others.
This past season, we brought the acclaimed Harlem String Quartet to children in New London, Norwich, and Waterford. They performed twelve concerts in four days, November 5-8, 2013. This season we will present the Asylum Quartet, an acclaimed saxophone ensemble.
